Let Kindness Flow

Greeting Objective

Directions

  • Students stand in two circles, one inner and one outer circle.
  • Students in the inner circle face a partner in the outer circle.
  • Say the chant (clap partner hands on the “clap, clap”) and greet each other.
  • At the end of the chant, ONLY the outer circle steps to the left. Students now have a new partner.

Use the following format:

Ashley: “Good morning, Jake!”

Jake: “Good morning, Ashley.”

Class Chants: “Let kindness flow from me to you as we clap our hands.” (clap, clap). Now step left and turn around to greet another friend.”

Continue until everyone has made it around the circle once.
